T-Mobile Aggressively Prepping Network for iPhone's Arrival
Last week MMi reported that T-Mobile is finished existing in the shadow of the nation's top three wireless carriers. In 2013, T-Mobile will join the ranks of Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint by formally carrying the iPhone across its network - a network that is actively being upgraded ahead of this major development.
On Thursday, T-Mobile launched its upgraded HSPA+ systems in five key regions across the U.S. The launch regions this morning included Chicago, Illinois, Reno, Nevada, Fresno and Sacramento, California, and the greater Los Angeles community (but not actually downtown LA).
T-Mobile says these upgrades will now provide voice and data enhancements, improved signal strength and in-building coverage for customers in the aforementioned regions.
"T-Mobile has now enhanced the network in 23 metro areas," says Neville Ray, Chief Technology Officer for T-Mobile USA, "and we have already reached 100 million people with this improved network experience." Ray says that mobile network advancements are also ongoing everywhere from Boston and the New York metro area, to Philadelphia and San Diego.

Found this to be very exciting reading T-Mo news.
* Internal tests of unlocked iPhone 4S devices running over 4G (HSPA+) on our 1900 MHz network recorded on average 70% faster download speeds than iPhone 4S devices on AT&T’s network. Savings based on comparison of T-Mobile $69.99/month Unlimited Talk, Text and Data plan against AT&T Unlimited Talk, Text, and 3GB Smartphone Data plan. Does not include taxes, fees or promotional offers. Plan features and limitations vary.

doesn't do you any good if they are not broadcasting 4G LTE in your area! (Like mine!?!)

Can't wait! So far I've only been getting spotty 3G in my area(Chicago suburbs).

Good that they put that failed ATT bid contract money/towers to use. Or did the US part of T-Mobile not see any of that since the parent T-Mobile was trying to cut it off.

AT&Ts LTE in buffalo NY when I was visiting last month was 60mbps down and 20 up. Which is great, but I burned through my 5gb data REALLY fast. It's like having a 6 lane highway with no speed limit that you can only drive 1 mile on. T-mobile's unlimited everything plan looks pretty attractive...

Ah yes. However, when I go to a friends house and try to download a large file on his dsl connection, I'm sorely tempted to tether my phone and have that 2gb file in 15 seconds. 😊
